The goal of this article is to examine the ethnic roots and cultural association of Nezami Ganjavi, one of the greatest Persian poets. It is of course well known that Nezami is a universal figure, but there are two reasons to examine his ethnic and cultural associations. The first reason is that it helps us understand his work better. We provide exposition of rare sources (such as Nozhat al-Majales) which are crucial for the study of the 12th century region of Arran and Sherwan. The other reason to write this article, as explained later in this paper (under the section: politicization of Nizami USSR and its remnants today), is the politicization surrounding Nezami Ganjavi's ethnic and cultural background by the USSR for the purpose of nation building. Through objective analysis of Nezami Ganjavi's work and other primary historical sources, we analyze the ethnic root and cultural background of the famous Persian poet Nizami Ganjavi.

Authors: Siavash Lornejad - Ali Doostzadeh

The book, written by Siavash Lornejad (first author), and Ali Doostzadeh (secondary author), which is much more thorough. It is an academic book with reviews from Western scholars who speak Persian. It supersedes this article in all aspects.

Subject: It is the duly and useful book for all Caucasians and Iranians.
It is the duly and useful book. The Azerbaijan politicians pervert the past of the country in spirit of primitive Pan-Turkism.
